Benadryl dosage

I am wondering what dosage of benadryl to give 900lb horse? Do I get the tablets and ground them and mix in grain?

What exactly are you wanting the Benadryl to do? Because antihistamines have very little effect in horses the way they do in humans.

The usual dose is 10 pills (not capsules) crushed up. That equals 250 mg. What is it for?

Well, I will be treating my mare for neck threadworms and preparing myself for itching to get worse before it gets better and possibly hives.
